A while ago I was contacted by Oral B to see if I wanted to take part in their month long challenge. I know its a bit off subject for my blog but I really wanted to give it ago. I'm really paranoid about my teeth as I have some overcrowding at the bottom. I am fully intending on having invisalign treatment when my finances allow it. Anyway I used to use an electric toothbrush religiously, until it died a slow and painful death and I went back to just using a normal one. I'm interested to see if it makes a big difference to my overall oral hygiene. We'll see how I get on. I'll be using the Oral B P-500 and making sure I follow a few tips provided by Oral-B ambassador and dentist Dr. James Russel:
1. FLOSS: You must floss once a day to achieve optimum oral health.
2. BRUSH: Twice a day for 2 minutes. Your Oral-B Professional Care 500's timer will keep you on track.
3. CURB SNACKING: We all need a boost during the day but keep your snacks to foods like cheese, raw vegetables, nuts and breadsticks which are all better for teeth.
4. AVOID: Fizzy drinks. Not only are these drinks often high in sugars but they are very acidic too. These acids can quickly erode tooth enamel.
Is oral hygiene important to you? Do you use an electric toothbrush or could you not give two hoots?
